The VBDô 300 from Maguire Products, Inc., Aston, Pennsylvania, consumes 60 percent less energy, dries resin in one-sixth the time and substantially reduces the heat history to which polymer is exposed.

Maguire Products, Inc., Aston, Pennsylvania, released the VBDô 300, a new vacuum resin dryer that achieves throughputs of up to 300lb/hródouble the capacity of the company's VBD 150 model.

It enables more molding and extrusion processors to obtain the advantages of vacuum dryers over conventional desiccant systems, including lower operating cost, increased efficiency and greater control over the drying process. In comparison with desiccant dryers, the VBD vacuum dryer consumes 60 percent less energy, dries resin in one-sixth the time and substantially reduces the heat history to which polymer is exposed. The speed with which the VBD system removes moisture makes properly dried polymer available for production only 35 minutes after a cold start.
